Good old uncle Sanguine by FoolishLittleMortal Good old uncle Sanguine by FoolishLittleMortal
Everyones favourite 'uncle'! :B
Sanguine, the Daedric Lord of debauchery.

Couldn't scan the painting so had to take a photo. Impossible to not get reflective light on it. I also had to adjust the colours in Photoshop. This is as close as I can get it to the original. I'll try to make a better photo sometime in the daylight with an other camera. I'll update the pic if I manage to get a better photo of it.

With that said, here it finally is! :D

Not bad for someone who never really paints traditionally and only just recently started drawing more realistic style faces.
Well... at least I'm quite proud of this. :)

I've been working on this for over a week now. I kept messing around with it and I had to change things all the time that bothered me.
Here's the WIP

I only had refs of this guy looking very serious. But I wanted my Sanguine to smile. He is a fun-loving demon after all. 8D
He's one of my favourite characters in Skyrim. :love:


Time: Pffft I don't know the hours, but worked on it for over a week.
Materials: Acrylic paint on canvas (no idea what kind of canvas though. Something cheap. xD)

The Elder Scrolls and Sanguine belong to Bethesda.
Painting is all mine. C:

Happy Halloween! 8D

I thought about making a daedra-worshiping character in Skyrim and using console hacks to make Sanguine her follower. I'm sure it would be glorious fun!:happybounce:

Your hand at detail is incredible! And with acrylic no less!! Bravo! =D
 
Just had to sympathize with you on you photography issues. :'( though I don't notice it in your piece, I have such DGRTJHDFJIFSXWFHN frustration with getting good pics of my works! Gotta own a bloody photo lab or something... :P
 
Anyhow- this= pure awesome. *toothily grins right back at Uncle*

You know I think there's a glitch in the game where you can see him again I actually went back to the place where the entrance to the misty groove is and I found sanguine there fighting bandits plus I like this

If my poor Dovahkiin saw this, she'd probably run a mile like "By the Divines! Why must this happen to me?!" :XD:

Mischief is her style. Debauchery is not.

You made a DA account because of me? :blushes: That might be the biggest compliment I've had in a while.
And you're even interested in buying. :faint:

I'm glad you like it. :D
Although I'm not sure if I want to sell it. Kinda like it myself too. ^^;

Ik hoop dat je besluit dat je hem toch wil verkopen (al begrijp ik wel waarom je hem zelf zou willen houden :P)

Ik ben van plan binnenkort ook aan een Skyrim project te beginnen, ik ga proberen samen met een vriend de Dragon Priest Masks te maken.

(You should consider painting Sheogorath once :> )

Tja, als ik er een week mee bezig ben geweest dan geef ik het origineel niet zomaar op. xD;
Het is ook niet echt een kleine maat. En ik maak er materiaal aan op dat ik weer moet bijkopen.
Traditioneel is nou eenmaal duur. :B

Maar geen probleem. Ik hou hem zelf. :)
Toch bedankt voor de interesse. :D

*sigh* this really pains me to look at (the ingame character model, not the drawing the drawing is good)...they made him look like a dremoara, it's obviously laziness on Bethesdas part and it is unaceptable,Skyrim as a whole is unaceptable,it's the worst elder scrolls game to date! anyway i just needed to get that off my chest, the art is good great job :)

Als ik op deze wijze kon schilderen,
dan zou ik echt punten scoren bij modeltekenen. XD

Dan kun je zo'n hyperrealistisch zelfportret maken.

Ik merk echt dat ik er op vooruit ga. :)

Sanguine's one of my favourite Daedric Princes. :D I can see why you're proud of it, it's fantastic. Traditional painting's quite finicky and complicated at best, and you really pulled this one off.
Reply
:iconfoolishlittlemortal:
FoolishLittleMortal Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks. :D

Pretty much everything about this was a challenge to me.
I rarely paint, so I wasn't really confident about my current skill level. I thought this might be another failure which would have me put down the paintbrush for at least a year again. xD;
That and I also never really draw people. I only recently started practicing on drawing more realistic faces.

But sometimes I just like to challenge myself. I also had the sudden inspiration to paint. I just couldn't ignore that. :B

I feel like I improved a lot while making this.
I still made plenty of mistakes in the process of the painting, but I was able to fix most without messing things up.
Which reminds me I still need to put together the WIP...

Yeah, sometimes pushing your comfort zone can be an utter disaster, but sometimes it can be surprising! And it's the best way to learn, too. :)

That isn't to say learning can't be painful as hell sometimes. :XD: I'm glad it went well for you.
